There are two available methods to embed external content into a page or post.
Paste the URL of the content (e.g., the specific URL of the video, image or tweet) on its own line within the post or page. U.OSU will automatically embed the content.
This method will work with a list of approved sites, including Youtube videos and individual tweets; however, it does not work with all content.
Use the embed code of the content and insert the embed code into the page or post. This method works with any content that has an embed code. See below for details.
Using the embed code for videos and other external content is a two part process. Though this article focuses on embedding different videos, other content can be embedded as well.
For example, see the Wordpress Support pages for how to embed Google Calendar and Google Maps into your post. You may need to publish your post before the map or calendar is visible.
Note that the embed code must be pasted into either the Text tab or into the Insert Embed Code area (Add Media > Insert Embed Code).
Copy the HTML embed code for the video you would like to share.
See Embed Code in Mediasite, Embed Code in Vimeo or Embed Code in Youtube for examples of where to find video embed codes.
Once you have copied the HTML embed code, paste the code within the HTML portion of your U.OSU post.
In a separate tab or window, login to your U.OSU site.
Click Posts or Pages.
Select Add New to add a video to a new post (or page) or navigate to the Edit Post page to add a video to an already created post.
See Working with Posts or Working with Pages for information on creating / editing posts or pages.
On the Add New Post (or Page) / Edit Post (or Page) page, there are two tabs at the top right of your main content window. By default, the tab marked Visual is selected.
Click on the second tab marked Text.
Click Add Media > Insert Embed Code.
Paste the embed code that you copied inside the content window on a blank line. This can be done by pressing CTRL+V on PCs and COMMAND+V on Macs.
If embedding code using the Add Media button, paste the embed code and click Insert into post.
Click on the Visual tab, if necessary. This will take you back to your main post editing window. There is now a placeholder where the video will appear.
Continue adding content as needed and click Publish to publish your post.
